LAS VEGAS (AP) — Las Vegas police are making a new plea for information about a 10-year-old girl last seen with a casino card dealer now accused of using razor blades to slash a co-worker's face at a Las Vegas Strip resort.

Capt. Chris Jones told The Associated Press on Thursday that investigators hope someone knows where Jade Morris is.

The girl was last seen by her family at about 5 p.m. last Friday with 50-year-old Brenda Stokes.

Stokes also uses the name Brenda Wilson.

She was supposed to have taken the girl shopping.

Stokes was arrested about 9:30 p.m. that night after allegedly attacking a female co-worker who was dealing blackjack at the Bellagio.

Stokes is being held on felony charges related to the attack.

Police have a red 2007 Saab sedan Stokes had been driving.
